ONTAP Simulator 9.2 running on VirtualBox or RedHat Enterprise Virtualization

ClearSharkian1

Good day everyone! 

 

A customer of mine is runnning VirtualBox and/or RedHat Enterprise Virtualization on his Mac and was wondering if there was any way to run the ONTAP 9.3 Simulator in either of those environments.  I know right on the Simulator download site that is only runs in a VMware environment but thought I would do my due dilligence and check here just in case.

 

Any thoughts/experiences would be greatly appreciated folks.

Thank you in advance.

Hello Rob,

 

It is possible to run the Simulator using Oracle's VirtualBox. I don't think the Simulator is supported, but if it is this would certainly fall into the "unsupported" category : )

 

If you are a partner with access to FieldPortal, please send me an email (community username at netapp.com), I can send you a document to help.

RHEV only seems to support Windows and Linux VMs, which ONTAP is not (it is close to FreeBSD), so I'm pretty confident it won't work.
